Biography

Rajesh Sharma is an Indian film actor known for his power-packed performances in Khosla ka Ghosla, The Dirty Picture and Tanu weds Manu Returns. Born in Punjab, Rajesh Sharma was brought up in Kolkata. He graduated from the prestigious National School of Drama, New Delhi. After making his breakthrough in Maachis (1996), Rajesh Sharma spent the next several years acting in Bengali films. These films included Rituparno Ghosh’s National Award winning Shubho Mahurat (2002), Paromitar Ek Din (2000) and Shankar Ray’s Badsha The King (2004). He returned to Hindi cinema with a supporting role in Parineeta in 2005. This was followed by a pivotal supporting role for Rajesh Sharma in Dibakar Banerjee's comic caper, Khosla Ka Ghosla (2006). Before his appearance in Ishqiya (2010), Rajesh Sharma acted in a clutch of Bengali movies. Saran Dutta’s Shikar (2006) and Kranti (2006) by Riingo Banerjee were the most noteworthy of those films. While Rajesh Kumar’s role in Ishqiya didn’t receive much coverage, he was much more visible in 2010’s landmark hit, No One Killed Jessica, as the cop with a conscience. After another brief interlude with mostly Bengali releases, Rajesh Kumar featured in Salman Khan’s first production, Chillar Party (2011). The year proved to be a good one for Kumar as he followed up Chillar Party with a role in Srijit Mukherjee’s high voltage Bengali thriller, Baishe Srabon. He was then a part of the Balaji Telefilms’ blockbuster, The Dirty Picture (2011). Over the next couple of years, the split of Hindi and Bengali movies Rajesh Kumar acted in remained even. His most prolific Bengali movies included Life In Park Street (2012), while in Bollywood he was seen in movies like Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012) and Special 26 (2013). In 2013, he also had important roles in Shuddh Desi Romance and the drama BA Pass. He was married to the Bengali actress, Sudipta Chakraborty from 2005 to 2009. He is now married to Sangeeta.
